The Jehovah's Witnesses religion is a pretentious fraud.

    Yup that's right the JWS religion is a pretentious fraud orchestrated by men running their own religious publishing house.

    These men cultivated a semblance of power around themselves through their own propagation of being chosen by god or being more righteous than other Christian leaders by their self supporting acclaim that they have truer and more accurate bible interpretations.

    Another known fact is these top leading men were not academically trained bible scholars.

    The first leading executive writer of the WTS was a professional clothing salesman/ businessman. The man who followed him in taking over the WTS was a professional lawyer, both were novice Bible scholars at best.

    Nevertheless they took whatever purposed theology from out the bible that was usable to proliferate the literature that they would eventually publish toward the general public.

    In spite of these bible teachings such as setting a specific date of Christ's return , the supposed 6000 years of mankind's existence used three separate times, these men still made the self assertion that anyone who weren't loyal and subservient to them would most likely be killed at the soon to arrive Armageddon.

    Essentially this propagation of fear was used and exploited to sustain power and control over a vast amount of people who would offer their own free labor in distributing the WTS's literature and as well give their money to the organization.

    So one can reflectively see the JWS was founded upon a guise of false pretentiousness and commercialism by one particular religious publishing house that didn't really adhere to the bible faithfully or the words spoken by Jesus to those preaching his Gospel.

    While the WTS are not scholars, and tell us to not read outside material, the WTS does it all the time, quoting from non-jws, supposedly well-known and respected. That is if the WTS gives us enough identifiers so we can figure out from their saying "some scholar says" but does not give his/her name and just a snippet of the quote so we can check if it really says what the writer intended.

    Almost all the Awakes are material from non-jw articles or carefully chosen interviews with scientists. The WTS is not bashful to use a source that is over a 100 years old but not reveal that and pretend it is current, and that pretend that nothing new has been found or proven differently from then on (but discourage you from checking their source.

    Here's a quotation from the text of a letter to all elders: (not sure which one)

    "The Kingdom Ministry School textbook emphasizes the importance of thorough preparation on the part of the study conductor. But this does not mean that he should introduce additional material from his own personal research and thus possible overshadow what has been published in the magazine. Extensive research has already been involved in producing the study article, and the points to be emphasized are those included in the paragraphs under consideration. When outside material is introduced, it often detracts from what "the faithful and discreet slave" has prepared for the congregation. (Matt 24:45-47) The impression may be given that the additional information from the conductor's research is of equal or greater value."

    Not only a "fraud" but they admit their Bible understanding is "slanted" not on facts, but on ideas. No one wants to go to a church and hear "slanted" ideas!

    "Furthermore, the remnant of spiritual Israel had for decades .. been looking forward to the ending of the Times of the Gentiles in the autumn of 1914. They were expecting God's Messianic Kingdom to be fully established in the heavens by then and also for the remnant of spiritual Israel to be glorified with Jesus Christ in the heavenly kingdom at that time. All understanding of the Holy Scriptures was slanted in that direction or adjusted to that idea." {MSWD 136} (Man's Salvation Out of World Distress)

    Thank you Blondie for your comments on the forum are always top notch and correct.

    The FDSL of the WTS have always prepared some selectively chosen information either from secular knowledge or from the Bible , faithfully loyal to the organization to give to the pubic, not necessarily loyal to Jesus and his guidance and information.

    As it can be seen the WTS exploited the ignorance present within the general public of what the Bible really says , some would call an act of corruption , apostasy or even sin.

    Thanks Muddy

    I just think its important to be honest and revealing as much as possible so people dont harm themselves by being involved in this act of delusional corruption and stupidity.

    I grew up in the religion and I've seen the deaths, the divorces, the suicides, the depression, the anxiety, the anguish from believing the world was going to come to an end, therefore there was no need to gain an education.

    Mind controlling people through fear and ignorance is never helpful to humanity, never was, never will be.
